What to do, What to do?

Fridays are paydays for me. Yesterday, after leaving the bank, I was so pleased to see this:

I thought the days of $1.xx gasoline were only a memory!! Something to tell the kids and grandkids about, like our grandmas told us stories of the days before telephones, tv's and automobiles.

Normally, I budget $40 per week for gas. Some weeks over the summer, I actually had to up that amount. I also have a favorite local BP gas station...more specifically, a favorite gas pump at that station that it seems when I fill up at this pump, I almost always have gas left over at the end of the week! Maybe it's just a coincidence. Maybe it's wishful thinking and a little OCD.

Anyway, yesterday I was able to fill up my tank for $16!!!! I was so excited, I thought, what to do with the left over money??? I decided to put that 'left over' cash back into the economy and bought myself some new CD's! I visited my local F.Y.E. and picked up some used CD's and a new one. I even bought one for my momma, too :)

As far as my big weekend project goes, I have yet to start on it. I could blame the tv which is usually my biggest distraction, but to be honest, I've been online more than just watching tv this time. Oh well, maybe next weekend!

There's a QT over on Gravois yesterday that was at $1.92 a gallon. Don't forget about stlouisgasprices.com for the latest. They're reporting $1.72 in Saint Charles!

Yeah? I never think to look for lower prices, I have it stuck in my head the gas I get goes farther from "my pump" so I just get really excited when I see that station has good prices LOL It's an OCD thing I think. Hey, maybe those $1.72 prices will migrate this way!

well, it's all positive since Obama was elected. The Dollar is worth loads more cos there is more confidence in the US economy so my $ earnings buy me more here in the UK

Our gasoline prices dropped to 99.9 cents (Canadian) per litre up here, which is like $4.50 US per gallon (!!!). So you guys are STILL doing much, much better than us for gas prices! I find that weird since the US imports most of its oil from Canada now. Maybe we should stop selling it to you so we can get a break on gasoline?? ;)
